That's right, we have actually released plans that we created! The plans will enable you to build and even tune a small desktop-sized Hinged Counterweight Trebuchet (HCW) that will throw a small rubber ball 20 feet! Begin war today on your cubicle neighbors! See the page here: Mini-HCW Plans.
In other news, if you are in the Rochester, NY area this Saturday (May 7, 2011), be sure to come by Imagine RIT. It is free, and is a great time for parents and children alike. We will be demonstrating Melon Felon, Janus, and a FAT Whipper nicknamed GRAW. We will also be showing some of the engineering work we undergo in designing these machines along with some videos of our machines and also some stuff from the World Championships of Punkin Chunkin.
